Haloumi and silver beet fritters recipe
Pan fried haloumi is a fabulous addition to any salad. Here, it is grated and mixed with greens to create tasty fritters. Enjoy them on their own or pop them into a bun with some salad for a great veggie burger alternative.
- 180g haloumi, coarsely grated
- 2 cups silver beet, finely shredded
- 1 tbsp mint, chopped
- 1 lemon, zest
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup plain flour
- 40ml (2 tbsp) olive oil
In a large bowl, combine haloumi, silver beet, mint, lemon zest, eggs and flour. Season well.
Heat olive oil in a large fry pan over medium heat. Scoop 1/4-cup serves into fry pan, flatten slightly and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden. Remove to a plate lined with absorbent paper towel.
Serve with lemon wedges.
To prepare silver beet, wash well, remove stalks then roll leaves tightly and slice very finely.
English or baby spinach would be a good alternative to the silver beet.
